This is a very pleasant b&b and very good value. In nearly eight weeks travel around the us, Belle View Inn has probably had the best service of any place we have stayed at. We stayed one night and left early the next morning. The host went out of her way to ensure we had something decent for breakfast.

The location was ok, close to Bellevue Ave and a reasonable walk to the waterfront. It is near some industrial action and a supermarket loading area, but this wasnt an issue for me. The bed was comfortable, and the room spacious with a separate sitting room. My one complaint would be the lack of good heavy curtains or blinds to block out the irritating light that shone across the street all night. This could easily be rectified and would make a big difference. Otherwise, I would have no hesitation recommending the Belle View.

The Belle View Inn is clean, nicely located relative to waterfront, cliff walk and mansions but not sure it rates as one of the best in America, or Rhode Island.
The location is on a mixed residential commercial street with a loading dock for the chain grocery directly across the street and a seven eleven and gas station at the end of the street. There is no common parlor or sitting room, only a breakfast area with straight back chairs that do no encourage lounging.
For breakfast we were asked to order a single pastry from a listing of choices. In the morning the pastry was presented on a plate with a plastic wrap around it.
We have stayed in incredible places and dreadful places and this struck us as average, that is not a bad rating.

Our kids treated us to a two-night stay at this absolutely charming B & B for our wedding anniversary. ("The Triple Mansion Package:") The accomodations were wonderful - spacious, comfortable, with a private deck. Lorna was a most gracious hostess: friendly, charming, informative, and helpful. She treats you like you've been a friend for years. The location of the Inn is fantastic. You can walk to nearly everything: the waterfront and all its restaurants and attractions; the famed Cliff Walk; the mansions along Bellevue Avenue, etc.
Lorna really knows Newport and she'll give you the best advice available and will cheerfully make reservations for you. We'll definitely be back.

Stayed here at the Belle View for 2 days this week. We stayed at the Parkview Suite which is above the carriage house. It was absolutely beautiful and spacious, it was like having a huge studio apartment. Lorna the host was welcoming and helpful. She made sure to answer any questions about Newport and was great making suggestions of things to do, and restaurants to eat at. We used all of her recommendations and were pleased with them all. The B&B had everything you needed, water, chairs & umbrellas for the beach. The B&B is also within walking distance to everything including Cliff walk, downtown Newport, and some of the beaches. Lorna even takes your breakfast order and has everything you need for a nice little breakfast before starting your day. I can't say enough about this great B& B. This was my first experience at a B&B and I can say I was nervous at first, but once I arrived all my worries went away and I had a great trip. Thanks to Lorna for hosting us and helping to make our getaway memorable.

Room Tip: Loved the ParkView Suite

This is the best B&B in the U.S. I've ever stayed in. Our room (the Freebody suite) was large, clean, quiet and comfortable. The decor straddled modern and quaint well, which is to say you'll have a modern shower and also doilies in your room. The location is great - we walked to the cliffs, and downtown, but you could hoof it to the beach and mansions if you like, too. Lorna is a welcoming and organized proprietor who provides great tips if asked, and will leave you be if not. Breakfast was tasty.

Room Tip: If want to look at the Newport grass courts, pick the Freebody or Tennis suite.
